One of the things the Coalition of the Sane can’t let happen is the ‘forgetting’ of the lunacy that is the theopolitical right. Any time someone who supported this lunacy makes public utterances, we must make sure that whatever they say is qualified by “Person X, who is a fucking wackaloon…” While this might smack of vengeance, it’s not.
That’s just a side benefit.
This is actually a public service. Consider the list John Cole put together–all that’s missing is creationism:
1.) Justice (“Just Us”) Sunday
2.) Schiavo legislation
3.) Jesus is my philosopher.
4.) Michael J. Fox must be mocked for wanting stem cell research.
5.) The never-ending fake war on Christmas (Christmas keeps kicking ass, btw, and shows no sign of ending. Funny, that).
6.) Federal Marriage Amendment and the never ending gay-bashing as wedge issue.
7.) Evangelical support for torture.
8.) The ceaseless idiocy about displays of the Ten Commandments.
9.) Pharmacists for Life deciding that they get to choose whether or not you need your prescribed medicine.
10.) School prayer arguments.
11.) Demanding that intelligent design (aka creationism) be taught.
12.) Meddling in the FDA.
13.) Abstinence only as the only sex-ed.
14.) The take-over at the Justice Department from the God Squad.
15.) Goodness. How could I have forgotten Phil Kline, who wanted to rifle through medical records to prosecute people for abortion? Phil Kline is not a Democrat.
16.) And how about the opposition to the human papillomavirus vaccine, choosing to pretend their kids don’t have sex over the prevention of cervical cancer.
Anyone who went along with this lunacy shouldn’t be allowed anywhere what is thought to be a sane conversation.
